I'm not the kind of girl who responds to a message equivalent of "Hey baby" so don't use one to get my attention, please. I'll just know you didn't read my profile at all.
I'm not a big fan of pop culture, or going with the flow. I like to think about things way too much.
I have too many interests and not enough time.
I am drawn equally to science and art. I don't have all that much for artistic skills, but I like to try new things and I'm good with my hands.
I have 2 bull terriers. The dogs are kind of a big deal.
I'm also serious about the looking for new friends thing. I'm bored and my friends kind of suck. They all have kids or live too far away to do anything with less than a week's planning. Not that I'm that spontaneous, or anything, but it would be nice to be able to find somebody to go see a movie with 2 hours' notice once or twice a year.
What I’m doing with my life
Just getting started on career #2. Hoping the healthcare industry is more stable than biotech! Crossfit and weightlifting for fun and exercise. I coach some as well.
I’m really good at
Driving, assembling jigsaw puzzles, lifting heavy stuff, trying new
Some paraphrased quote I saw once has it right. " You might not be
able to be the best at something, but you can always try to get
better at it."
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a brown-eyed blonde; I guess that makes me a freak of nature or
something. My biting sarcastic wit. Or that I look exactly like
somebody who works in the same building as they do, or some girl
they knew in high school, or went to camp with, or their best
friend's sister's cousin. seriously, I get that almost every week.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like anything by Christopher Moore, Carl Hiassen, and similar authors. I like non-fiction, too, but I prefer fiction. I don't read as much as I should, I get too sucked into researching whatever on the internet sometimes. Trying to work on that.
I'm not a big movie or tv watcher, very little originality anymore. I really don't miss much other than the occasional sporting event.
Musical tastes are all over the place. I either like it, or I don't. Nothing really genre-specific, though I do have preferences, usually driven by mood. I sing in the car.
Meat is an important part of a human diet. That's all I have to say about that.
The six things I could never do without
I've done without a lot of things in the past, and I'm sure I could
do it again in the future. Will never give up my dog, though.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All sorts of stuff. Wondering why if men stereotypically hate cats,
do so many men seem to have them. Trying to figure out the
attraction everyone seems to have for running 5ks lately. Deciding
if the merits of grass-fed beef outweigh the expense over
conventional- raised. Imagining how Staffrobot must laugh to itself
every time it sends religious, heavy-bearded vegetarians to my
On a typical Friday night I am
Raising the bar. And then lowering it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I despise hipsters with the heat of a thousand housefires. Ok, It's
not really private, anybody who has been around me for an hour
knows that. Sorry.
You should message me if
You are intrigued. You aren't turned off by strong women. You don't
skip leg day. Also, not vegetarian, religious, or homophobic.
